The Belmorian Language

The Belmorian Language is spoken by 2 billion Belmorians across The Belmore Family and about 50 million Belmorian ex-pats around the world. The most interesting thing to note about Belmorian is the absence of the word "the" replaced by merely a t onto the end of the word. It is a very strict language that rarely breaks its rules.

Simple Pronouns & Verbs

As in almost all languages, Belmorian words change depending on who is in the nominative. Unlike other languages the sounds are very similar which means, though it is easy to learn hearing the differences can be hard.


Here is a list of the endings for verbs which fall under the following pronoun:

You (pl) -este-ess-elle


Now you know how verbs change you must be able to find how they fit onto the end of verbs. Let us look at the same table for the verb to run which is "Jung".

You (pl) JungesteJungessJungelle

And that is all you need to know on Pronouns and Verbs. There are no breakages of this rule.


What is absolutly vital to your success in Belmorian is that you never use the word "do" there is no word for it in Belmorian and is always dropped. never try to work your sentences around the word "do".

Word Order

Again, the word order is very simple. This will stick to a rule and unless you are asking a question this word order will never change.

Simple Sentence Structure

The order for a simple sentence with only the nominative in it will be:


For a sentence with the nominative doing something to the accusative you will have the word order:


In the dative (eg/ This is the book of the master)

Subject (book) /verb (is) /preposition (of) /object (master)

The Dative in speech (eg/ This is my book)

Subject (book) /verb (is) /Pronoun (mine)

You can see that building Belmorian sentence structure is very simple. You will always have the subject first followed by the verb. Then you can add on the extras. Later on, we will look at complex sentence structures, especially when a comma is involved or a question is being asked.

Including the word not

If you wanted to add the negative to either of these it would be:


You can see here, as in German that the word not is pushed right to the end. To the differences look at the phrases below;

English:I do not spend
German:Ich kaufe nicht (I spend not)
Belmorian:Jo ponas nah (I spend not)

Other words that travel to the end

Not only does the word not go to the end. Words such as Coh (Please) , Cha (Thanks) and any time measurement will go to the end (Such as Khi which means now) . However, all of them may come in the same sentence. Belmorian then orders them. The sentence Not now thanks would be:

Khi Cha Nah (Now Thanks Not)

With the time coming first, the polite addition going second and the negative going last.


Questions slightly change the word order, being one of the few circumstances where Belmorian brakes it own rules. The subject and the verb will switch and you leave out the word for "do". So to change Jo ponas. (I spend) to the question "Do I spend?" you would switch the subject and the verb to get "Ponas jo?" leaving the "do" redundant. Similarly to change Jo jungas huh rho. (I run to you) to a question you switch the Jo and jungas (Subject and Verb) to create the question :"Jungas jo huh rho?" (Do I run to you?)


In this short chapter we will look at how the nouns change depending on the word "the" and problems with plurals.


You will often want to add the word the to a Belmorian noun. In all cases you end a t to the end of the verb. Though again this helps in the written language, it makes it hard to hear individual nouns. To practise this we can look at the sentence Jo jungas huh biblo. this is awful Belmorian grammar as it currently says (literally) "I run to book". Therefore we must add the word the to make it comprehensible. To do this we add a t to the end of the word biblo (book) making it biblot. We are left with the sentence Jo jungas huh biblot (I run to the book)

Problems with Plurals

The "Problems with plurals" are that no plural changes the noun so one must say Da biblo" (Two book) . So to say the English sentence "I run to two books" you must say Jo jungas huh da biblo".


Counting in Belmorian is relatively simple. Here is a step by step guide:

Up to 9

The following are all the numbers up to 9:

  • 1 - outa
  • 2 - da
  • 3 - tiro
  • 4 - quari
  • 5 - rintese
  • 6 - choto
  • 7 - cibi
  • 8 - deme
  • 9 - lira

Up to 90

The following are the multiplies of 10 up to 90 (all will be explained)

  • 10 - outala
  • 20 - dala
  • 30 - tirola
  • 40 - quarila
  • 50 - rintesela
  • 60 - chotola
  • 70 - cibila
  • 80 - demela
  • 90 - lirala

Putting them together

To put them together you simply say or write the highest number first going down with hyphens in-between. For example 74 would be cibila-quari, 59 would be rintesela-lira and 12 would be outala-da. If you want to go any higher (100, 3000 excetera) you just add a lafor (the amount of figures-1) so if you had a 7 digit number you would have 6 las on the end of word. So 115671 would be outalalalalala-outalalalala-rinteselalala-chotolala-cibila-outa, no wonder the Belmorians are so bad at maths.

Advanced Sentance Structure

'Direct Questions'

Inn Belmorian, when you are not asking 'Did you do something' you have to use what is known as 'Direct Questioning' using words such as why and what. A list of these words is at the bottom of the page. These words are a single letter and go at the begining of the sentance. If you wanted to ask someone "Why did you buy the book?" You would put the letter Y at the beggining of the sentance. The sentace would be Y ponest rho biblot? You can use any of the words listed at the bottom in this way. If you wanted to say "When do you play?" You would insert the letter N to get the question N Spelest rho?


Helpfully for you saying something such as "That book" is relatively simple. However it fluctuates sometimes. If the noun begins with a vowel then you as the letters "tat". So to say "That Car" you would say Autotat. However, if the word begins with a consenant you add the letters "ta" so to say "That Book" you would audiate Biblota.

"And" & "But"

The word for "And" is "A" pronounced eh. To use it in a circumstance such as "I want that car and the book" nothing changes and you would say Jo matas Autotat A biblot. However if you wanted to say something along the lines of "I do not want that car and I do want the book" first of all you would put the nah before the A aswell as the second fragment of the sentence after the and would work like a question. You would end up saying Jo matas Autotat nah A matas jo biblot. The word for but U (pronounced ooh) works in exactly the same way so if you wanted to say "I do not want that car but I do want the book" which makes more sense you would dictate Jo matas Autotat nah U matas jo biblot.
